    This is the only X-Men book I read and one of the few I'd argue everyone should read. Read Full Review

    This issue is lighter on the metaphor than most of the series has been, but has enough strong relationship moments and excellent characterizations that it will likely still leave X-Men fans with the urge to pump their fists in the air. Read Full Review

    I like to be wrong. I was very wrong when I thought initially that nothing could top the events of the previous issue of X-Men: Red. It was a great feeling knowing that Tom Taylor knows how to hit you with a heavy story that genuinely represents what it means to fight for the future of a group of people. Why hasn't this guy been writing more of the X-Men stories? Read Full Review

    Taylor has really stepped it up with this issue. Read Full Review

    By the way, what a viscously miserable being she is. Calling Rachel Grey "dog girl" is a bit much. I'm not saying it's unnecessary dialogue. Far from it; I thought it was a small but great line that made me hate the character significantly more than before. Well done by Tom Taylor. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Oct 24, 2018

    X-MEN RED #9 is a fun read, with a lot of action and a lot of quality Jean Grey panel time, but it doesn't deliver a story half as intriguing as previous issues. The plot is so slow that this issue feels disappointingly similar to previous issues. Rachel is supposed to be a major player, but her role is surprisingly small. X-MEN RED is a great series, but this issue will fail to impress dedicated readers. Read Full Review

    X-Men: Red #9 was a solid ending to battle with Cassandra Nova. Tom Taylor did a great job using this story arc to build Jean Grey back up as one of most powerful superheroes and the leader the X-Men need. But as Jean was the star of the show it was a shame that the rest of the X-Men took a backseat in the finale of this big story arc. If it wasn't for the small role everyone but Jean Grey played X-Men: Red #9 would've been a stronger end than it turned out to be. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Christiansen Oct 24, 2018

    X-Men Red #9 doesn't live up to its potential and serves up yet another disappointing "confrontation" between Cassandra Nova and Jean Grey. Honeybdager, however, is once again a laugh riot and the unsung star of this series. Read Full Review
